Frances Adair Mckenzie is an interdisciplinary artist based in Montréal whose practice includes video installation, sculpture, animation, and collaborative ventures. She holds a diploma in New Media from B.C.I.T. and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University. She has exhibited work at the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides; Centre Clark and Oboro in Montréal; and Parisian Laundry and the Satosphère of the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT).

Eva Cvijanović is an animator and filmmaker focused on the storytelling potential of environments, character and the dialogs that they create. Since graduating from Concordia University, she had produced and directed two independent film (Seasick, 2013 and Once Upon a Many Time, 2010) and was part of the NFB’s Hothouse program (The Kiss, 2011). Drawn to the immersive power of the tangible, Eva works with felted wool, watercolour and pastels while being equally fluent in digital media.

Native to Victoria, British-Colombia, Allison Moore studied interdisciplinary art and video at Concordia University where she received in 2005 a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Fine Arts. Active in the artistic community in Canada and abroad for the past ten years, she has participated in numerous exhibitions, residencies, workshops and events. Her work explores in a playful and systemic manner the fascinating universe of the dematerialization and the decontextualization of the image and the body as much on a conceptual level than on a technological one.

Aaron Pollard is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal who has been producing and presenting video art and multimedia performances since the early 1990s. His works have been shown in Canada and abroad. He studied at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Concordia University, where he completed an MFA.
